The first reactions for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow are here, teasing the character’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s hard to believe but Black Widow is finally out and real people have actually seen it. A causality of delays amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Marvel’s Black Widow is swinging for a theatrical and Disney Plus Premiere Acess debut next month. Focusing on Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff as she comes to terms with her demons and her family, the film is set to finally bring closure and context to the character.
The first reactions for Scarlett Johansson’s final outing as the character have been released and as expected, they’re overall very positive. Critics have praised Black Widow for its emotional sentimentality and supporting cast, as well as its action. Viewers were particularly fond of Florence Pugh’s Yelena Balova, who is set to make huge strides in the future of the MCU.
Marvel movies are back and Phase 4 kicks off with the very entertaining and action-packed #BlackWidow.

Taskmaster was pretty underwhelming including the reveal of who’s under the mask. Dreykov is easily one of the weakest Marvel Studios villains of all time. Florence Pugh and David Harbour kill it though.

Marvel movies are back! #BlackWidow is a tense, action-packed spy thriller that truly completes Natasha’s story in a visceral & emotional way. Florence Pugh CRUSHES it & is an instant MCU icon. This is like the MCU's Bond movie w/ shades of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE & THELMA & LOUISE. pic.twitter.com/bauc2XVQlF

Marvel fans are going to really enjoy #BlackWidow. Lots of questions are answered w/ plenty of cool action. The big problem is we know Nat so well by now, she gets hugely outshined by almost everyone else in her own movie. Florence Pugh especially. Still, a solid addition to MCU. pic.twitter.com/xjW6aJyQkR

#BlackWidow is one of Marvel's best solo films.
Start to finish, the movie is great. Excellent surprises, emotional character moments, bad-ass action, and Scarlett Johansson finally gets to pour everything into the role.
Director Cate Shortland nailed it. Bravo. pic.twitter.com/sgEkUW63cT

Also the action is non-stop in #BlackWidow and so well done. And if you like it, you can thank 2nd unit director Darrin Prescott. You know his work from the ‘John Wick’ movies, ‘Black Panther,’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War.’ Don’t watch on Disney+. See this in a movie theater. pic.twitter.com/SiCuL66llR

As someone who went into #BlackWidow worrying it might feel like a placeholder following Nat's fate in ENDGAME, it's a joy to wash that concern away. This is a fantastic chapter in the MCU, packed with pulse-racing action, genuine stakes, and a KNOCKOUT end credits scene!! (2/2) pic.twitter.com/jtDFVZOztJ
